Hi Mike

Just go to the page on the site you want to put on our forum.
Copy the address and then go to our site and paste it
.

I'm an old dog but still like to learn new things. If you found a site that tells us that our 3.7's can add horsepower by using higher octane I sure would like to read it. I just filled up with 87 octane this morning at the Shell station and it was $3.55 per Gal. The 89 was $3.75 per gal. and the 93 octane was $4.05.

My car runs great on the 87 octane and I seen absolutely NO difference when I put the last two tankful's of 93 octane in it except the cost was way higher.

Ronnie

Thanks Ronnie for the info! 4.05 a gallon isn't that bad from where I am. :p Today gas is 1.44 a liter for 87. That's roughly 5.40$ a gallon!

Hi MrMike

Like I said I can always learn new things

2011 Ford Mustang Engine Dual Exhaust System
Finally, the V-6 Mustang gets dual exhaust! What this means in performance terms is that, if the owner uses premium or race gas on weekends, the engine should make considerably more power and torque than the numbers quoted here, which are the product of standard SAE dynamometer laboratory testing procedures and not real-world driving.

Which has been my point.the entire time..like mike said.. There is a difference but it won't change 1/4mile time but its felt in throttle and the way the car feels. My point being that its minimal but its there.is it worth it?? Up to the owner..i heard and felt my car different others might not.

I'm lucky

I found absolutely NO difference at all except in my pocketbook. I'm just going to stick with the 87 octane. I did go over three hundred miles using the 93 so the car had plenty of time to adjust. I'm back to 87 now and it still feels the exact same as the last tank full.
My car is crisp, no flat spots on take off and instant drop down when passing. I use Shell or Sam's club gas and find no difference in the gas at all. Sam's club gas is from a Texas refinery. (Valparaiso) or something like that.
The more I drive my 3.7 --The more I love it.

It's not a hp feel, you can't go off numbers. You have to feel it. I don't care what the numbers are. What I feel is more important. Just step back and try two tanks of each. You'll feel me lol
